Revlon Double Twist Mascara

Ok so I am always looking for the next bigger and better mascara, like I know most of you are. When I say Revlon's Double Twist I knew I had to give this 'revolutionary' traditional and rubberized brush a try!!

This product comes in 4 shades including Revlon's Blackened Ruby and retails for anywhere from $8-10 CAD. Revlond claims the following 'MASSIVE Volume, REMARKABLE Definition, Revolutionary 2-in-1 brush. Thickening Brush + Separating Combs = The Ultimate Lash Look'. All I have to say to that is LOL!!!

This has to be one of the worst mascara's I have tried in a long time! The brush is huge and hard to deal with. The opening in the tube is too large allowing mascara to clump up all over the brush, which equals clumpy hard to deal with lashes!

I understand that Revlon was trying to create a product that would meet everyone's needs, but I don't see how it would work for anyone! At first I though maybe the product I had was old or defective, but after reading reviews I know that it's not just me and it wasn't that one tube.

I am a HUGE Revlon fan which is what makes me even more sad that I have to tell you that this product was a fail in my books!

Have you tried this mascara?? If so what did you think of it??

@ Farah - The formula isn't bad, it's just the brush! I actually tried two different tubes so I know it isn't a faulty one! To bad b/c I love Revlon so much!!!!!!

I just tried this product as well and was so disappointed! The red rubber bristles were so clumpy I couldn't even see them after the first use. I find it hard to get the corner lashes covered because of the size of the brush and was left with clumps, clumps, clumps on my lashes. I even found it hard to wash off. After using my makeup remover, I'd wash my face and still have black running under my eyes. Very unimpressed. Alison C

@ Alison - Sorry I didn't get this posted sooner for you!!! I agree the brush was the total demise to this product! You can't tell me that problems didn't arise in the testing stage! I wouldn't be surprised if it disappeared from the shelves, and hopefully replaced with something much better!
